Another Day, Another Chance Of Thunder


Shocking that we're looking at another chance for severe weather in parts of the region.  Of course, I'm being sarcastic but today marks the fifth day in a row that at least parts of our region are looking at the threat for severe thunderstorms.  A weak disturbance will slide east in the wake of yesterday's storm system but in our active pattern it's enough to trigger scattered late afternoon and evening thunderstorms around the Mid Atlantic.  We're, again, under a slight risk for severe weather.

Odds favor most of these storms firing south of the city but modeling does indicate the possibility of storms as far north as I-78.  Like the past several days, any of these storms could become locally severe with gusty winds and hail.

The "good" news is that the odds of us hitting 90 are really low. Some parts of Central & Southern Delaware may flirt with 90 by day's end.  Locally, we should get to 87 for a high, upper 80's south and mid 80's north of the city.  Humidity remains high but we should see temperatures a notch or two lower than yesterday throughout the region.
